The Homeless Guy & I Have Something In Common
The Homeless Guy commented that he likes the blog skin because it reminds him of a sorely-longed-for swimming pool.
Homeless Guy, I totally agree. I miss swimming pools. I love swimming pools more than just about anything in the world. They're my favourite way to exercise, my favourite place to read.
I love the sharp smell of chlorine mixed with hot concrete.
I should join the Y. Which brings up another point...Kevin says he wishes he had access to a swimming pool. Does the Y have a homeless fitness program? I would think this might not be an altogether bad idea for the downtown Y--free memberships (or at least day passes) for the homeless.
Because, after all, the "C" does stand for Christian. What could be more Christian than providing homeless people with a place to shower, get some exercise and a bite to eat?
